Eni asks to drill eighth Zohr well away from gas field’s first phase

ZohrEni has requested permission from the Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS) to drill its eighth well in Zohr away from the first phase development area of the gas field to confirm the size of the field’s reserves, Al Shorouk reports.

EGAS has yet to reach a decision, a source from the regulator said. The Oil Ministry had announced last month that seven of the eight wells were drilled and producing, and that overall work on the field was 83.5% complete as of August. Zohr is expected to be fully developed by the end of 2018.
